Man Creates Thousands Of 'Dad Jokes' By Drawing On Three Daughters' Lunch Bags Each Morning

Man Creates Thousands Of 'Dad Jokes' By Drawing On Three Daughters' Lunch Bags Each Morning

A dad draws funny cartoons on his daughters' lunch bags each morning to brighten their day and has created thousands over the years.

Dave Blumenthal, 44, sends his three daughters - Sharni, 14, Tia, eight, and Milly, six - off to school every day with a new design complete with some pretty incredible dad jokes.

Each bag takes him about 10 to 20 minutes to draw, but Dave says the hardest bit is coming up with the designs in the first place.

Speaking to LADbible, Dave said: "It all started about eight-and-half years ago. My eldest daughter had just started school but since we had a newborn in the house at the time, my wife tried to make our first born feel special by cutting some shapes in her school lunch sandwiches.

"After a few days, I took over carving duties and the designs blossomed from there. I did all the letters of the alphabet, and then started on cartoon characters and Minions - all just carvings in the bread.

"These were a big hit in her classroom, but used to take ages, so one day, I decided to shortcut things and just draw on the sandwich bags themselves.

"The bags were an instant hit in the classroom and I would regularly field requests from my daughter's friends and teacher and a lot of the bags would be pinned up in the classroom.

"It turned out to be a great way to get my daughter to interact more with her teachers too. She has always been a little shy so this gave her a great avenue to start daily conversations with her teachers at lunch time.

"The bags have also always been a feature of discussions at parent teacher evenings too; in fact, usually it's something like, 'so your daughter is doing great...but can we talk more about your lunch bag drawings?'."

After several requests from teachers, Dave decided to set up an Instagram account where he shares his designs with his 5,000 followers.

Now his three daughters are at school, Dave is churning out three designs per day - and tailors each one, with simpler jokes for the youngest and more sophisticated gags and drawings for the older kids.
